Final Day for E-Waste Recycling at GeekHampton
Dusty old P.C.s, keyboards with broken tab keys, your original 2001 flip phone, tangles of cables that might power your 2005 Powerbook. It can be hard to let go of all this e-waste, and even harder to find a way to dispose of it safely and responsibly.
GeekHampton in Sag Harbor is offering a solution. Monday is the final day of the shop's latest e-waste recycling drive. Between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. all manner of unwanted and outdated electronics will be accepted for recycling. The shop promises that data will be destroyed securely and that "nothing ends up in a landfill." On the list of items that can be recycled are laptops and desktop computers, monitors, printers, mobile and landline phones, copiers, cable and wiring, networking equipment, and power supplies.
Monday is the third and final day of the effort. A previous article in The Star incorrectly stated that the waste would be accepted on Sunday. The shop is closed on Sundays.
